Chateau Sainte Eulalie 2003 Wine Review (NW)

Light berry and cherry nose
Some tobacco on the palate
Crisp green pepper finish

I like wine from Minervois in Southern France, but this particular one is not my favorite style. It tastes like a very simple Grenache. The flavors are light and thin; there's no depth or richness.

I paid $10 for the bottle, not knowing anything about it. In general, $10 for a Minervois usually surprises to the upside so they're worth keeping an eye out for. Grab one and give it a try, but take a pass on Sainte Eulalie. Raise a glass!
